It has just been announced that the famous Shah Alam Stadium and Malawati Indoor Stadium will be demolished to make way for an entirely new state-of-the-art facility.
Imran Salim, group managing director of Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB), stated that the present buildings would be demolished in order to raise the new moveable pitch, which would address the main issue of flash floods.
According to The Star, the new stadium will have a bowl-shaped architecture, a fixed roof, a raised platform, and an independent irrigation system. This eliminates the need for moats and brings fans closer to the action.
Shah Alam Stadium To Be Used For Football
The new Shah Alam Stadium will have a moveable pitch, hence the stadium may be used indoors or outdoors and can hold between 35,000 and 45,000 spectators.
The multi-use stadium, according to Imran, would be primarily used for football and aspires to be FIFA-certified as a venue for international competitions.
Wide walkways, open green spaces, covered access to various forms of transit, retail space, and other sports and multi-use facilities are all included in the proposed designs for the area outside the stadium in order to entice visitors and make the location self-sufficient.
Talks with the Selangor government will determine the complex’s final specifications.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari stated in July that the development expenditures for the project would be capped at RM787 million and borne by the developer through a land swap agreement.
However, no date has been announced for the demolition of both the Shah Alam Stadium and Malawati Indoor Stadium and the rebuilding of the over 200-acre complex.
